I was wondering if anyone here knows of a good place to get Avatars from that would meet the specifications for this site.

80 pixels high, 80 pixels wide & only less than 6KB



Thank you ahead of time

Hi ET,

Long time, no chat!

I don't know where to find avatars, BUT I did put a pic on here once. It was a standard size, and I just shrunk it to fit within those specs, and it worked... just in case you get stuck, or want to use a general pic from online. The pic I used was a cartoon type rather than a photo. Photos tend to still be too big even kb-wise, even when you get them to the right size.

Ok I have changed the boards avatar size limits to 100x100 and 8192 bytes (8K).

The way to make an avatar is to take a picture and then resize it to meet the guidelines, then upload it through your profile. Another way is to host the file somewhere else like on your own website and then just point to it.

in Christ,

Thankyou, I was wonderin' the same thing the other day. I tried loading a few avatars, but they were too big, so I gave up. :)
